Contributing to Society through Space-based Earth Observations
Human activity has expanded to a level today that likely affects the entire global environment. We must find a way to mitigate and adapt to climate change linked to global warming. This will require a series of actions that include gaining an accurate understanding of the current state of the Earth and human activity, predicting what will become of the Earth in the coming years, taking appropriate measures based on this prediction, and adjusting these measures after evaluating the results. Space-based Earth observation is anticipated to be a superior method for repeatedly observing the entire planet with consistent precision.
The EORC was established under the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) in April 1995 as Japan's core organization for Earth observation satellite data processing, analyzing, calibration/validation, and archiving. By continuing to carry out these activities using space-based Earth observation technology, we hope to assist humankind in its adaptation to climate change.
